Fender Japan TC-72 Black 2016 & New Hard Case



This guitar is actually sold as a "Classic 70's" Telecaster Custom but is generally known as a TC-72. With its Fender Dragster pickup at the neck and a Fender Alnico single coil at the bridge together with 2 x volume & 2 x tone + 3 way switch, TC-72's tend to be really popular & I can't see this guitar hanging around for long.

This guitar is yet another import from Japan that has been so little played that it still has the cellophane cover on the humbucker & on the pickguard. You can see this in the photos. I'll let the new owner remove these. There are no dents scrapes or bumps anywhere on this guitar. It really is in mint condition and it comes, as always with a brand new hard case

The guitar still looks great & the build quality is as you would expect. It's a really good guitar. What more can I say?

Please also check out the awesome demo video at the foot of the page. Recorded by session guitarist & friend Rob Burrows, it gives a quick taster of how this guitar can sound
Rob can be contacted via his website for online personal tuition at all levels

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a plain black one. I do have a tweed option and these are a little dearer (extra £12). If you prefer that, please email me for details. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in

So to sum up, a superb Fender TC-72 in Black from Fender Japan. This model is difficult to find here in the UK unless you want a Mexican built guitar. 

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the Paypal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
